This museum holds memories of Independence Movement of India and partition thereafter. Visit to this museum is like paying respect to Warriors.

This is a god project to develop Partition museum. This remembers all of us and the new generation about partition of India. Must visit by every Indian visiting Amritsar.

The Partition museum is pretty close to the Golden temple. The museum takes one back to the freedom struggle and the partition days that our ancestors would have witnessed. There are newspaper clippings, audio aids which describe the struggle that lead to a free India.
